Sadly for those wondering, it isn’t going to be Detox

While he was speaking to Power 99’s Mikey Dredd, Ice Cube announced that, along with the Straight Out of Compton album, Dr. Dre would be dropping an all new record inspired by the NWA biographical movie. According to Cube, the album will be dropping, along with a single, in August and will be his first album since his chart topping, 2001.

“He’s dropping something August 1st and its gonna be mega.” Declared Ice Cube, “It’s gonna be a dope record, and it’s all dropping the same day.”

Multitudes of fans are bound to be disappointed, however, as this may essentially spell the end to the Detox album that a plethora of people have spent a decade of their lives waiting for. After releasing multiple singles in support of it, including the Billboard Hot 100 chart topper “I need a Doctor featuring Eminem.” It appears that the album was scrapped in place of this new one coming out in August.
